Built in the early 1960s (and original known as the Post Office Tower), the 189m (620ft) cylindrical tall tower used to be open to the public, and featured a novel revolving restaurant that was run by holiday camp impresario Billy Butlin.

Citing safety concerns, BT has now removed the redundant aerials, leaving the top half of the tower looking strangely naked.
